Always liked NRPS.

IF YOU GO DOWN ROUND THE BEND IN THE RIVER
you're GONNA FIND A FEW CHANGES
BEEN GOING DOWN THERE
?CAUSE THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE
ROUND THE BEND IN THE RIVER
HAVE FORGOTTEN THEIR DREAMS
AND they've CUT OFF THEIR HAIR
AND TAKE A LAST, FLYING LOOK
AT THE LAST LONELY EAGLE
he's SOARING THE LENGTH OF THE LAND
SHED A TEAR FOR THE FATE
OF THE LAST LONELY EAGLE
FOR YOU KNOW THAT HE NEVER WILL LAND
IF YOU GO DOWN WHERE THE LIGHTS
PUSH THE NIGHTTIME
BACK FAR ENOUGH SO YOU can't FEEL THE FEAR
REMEMBER THE BOY WHO YOU LEFT ON THE MOUNTAIN
who's SITTING ALONE WITH THE STARS AND HIS TEARS
AND TAKE A LAST, FLYING LOOK
AT THE LAST LONELY EAGLE
he's SOARING THE LENGTH OF THE LAND
SHED A TEAR FOR THE FATE
OF THE LAST LONELY EAGLE
FOR YOU KNOW THAT HE NEVER WILL LAND
IF YOU GO DOWN TO THE GAS-POWERED FLATLAND
WHERE MOST OF THE PEOPLE JUST THINK
THAT they're FREE
REMEMBER THE PEACE THAT YOU HAD
ON THE MOUNTAIN
COME BACK TO THE LOVE THAT YOU HAD HERE WITH ME
AND TAKE A LAST, FLYING LOOK
AT THE LAST LONELY EAGLE
he's SOARING THE LENGTH OF THE LAND
SHED A TEAR FOR THE FATE
OF THE LAST LONELY EAGLE
FOR YOU KNOW THAT HE NEVER WILL LAND
FOR YOU KNOW THAT HE NEVER WILL LAND

Yep that is the one I remember the best but they pulled it out on several stops of that East Coast tour.
If memory serves correctly Garcia did a pirouette sometime during that MSG finale.

Always loved them. Had the first album on 8-track in my car during High School.

Loved their first album as well but don't feel they ever lived up to it over time. Their live recordings post 1971 are lacking a guitar presence- Nelson's no lead player and you can only ask so much of the pedal steel guy. Later when they were putting out albums with songs like 'Red Hot Women and Ice Cold Beer' I could only shake my head.
